Chronic HBV Egyptian patients
chronic HBV patients receiving Lamivudine therapy in hepatology clinic in the National Hepatology & Tropical Medicine Research Institute in Egypt.
Primarily: To study the correlations between the following parameters in adult Egyptian patients with chronic viral hepatitis B before treatment:
- HBV-DNA by quantitative PCR.
- Biopsy (if possible). Secondarily: After receiving lamivudine therapy we will identify the impact of these parameters on viral breakthrough at 1 year of therapy.
